### Sampling for multimodal posterior using Metropolis-Hastings

I was wondering how the well-known Metropolis-Hastings algorithm changes when sampling from a multi-modal posterior. In particular I was wondering what would change in the acceptance ratio in order to ...

### how can we apply masked language modelling on the images using multimodal models?

It might not be clear from the question what I want to say, but how can we apply masked language modelling with the text and image given using multimodal models like lxmert. For example, if there is ...

### Conducting Regression on a Multimodal Dependent Variable

The past two weeks I have been trying to tackle this complex problem where I have the following distribution of my dependent variable (log scale X-Axis). Using Sklearn, I've tried to tackle this using ...

### Is there a way to calculate peaks of a distribution mathematically?

I’m trying to find some way to mathematically calculate the number of peaks in a distribution. I know there are various tests (such as Shapiro Wilk) that assess whether a distribution is normal, but I’...

### Propagating losses in multimodal data model with joint fusion

I am building a model that combines imaging and structured data together. We plan on using a joint fusion architecture where we first process the images into nx1 vector using a CNN. We'll then combine ...

### Compare multimodal distributions for different groups

I am analyzing data from 3 different gait speeds. For each group/speed, I am determining specific value called "angle". Each group has different sample size. So, I need to compare multimodal ...

### How to test for inequality in the presence of non-independent noise?

I have multiple samples which include a response time of a system. I want to test if no sample is significantly different (primarily the expected value). For two sample testing I'm using the sign test ...

### Comparing means of multimodal distributions

I have a game in which players need to accomplish a certain set of tasks, and will receive a number of points for each task. If a player fails a task, he gets 0 points for that task. If he ...

### Can a bayesian neural network with independent normal variational distributions over weights and biases produce a multi-modal posterior?

For a project I am involved in, I am doing surrogate modelling. This means that I simulate data $\mathcal{D}=\{X,Y\}$ that is used to train some probabilistic non-linear regression model. The model is ...

### Measures of central tendency and dispersion of multimodal distributions

I want to make the argument that the mean is not an optimal description of the central tendency of a multimodal distribution and neither is the standard deviation an optimal measure of the dispersion ...

### Testing for uniformity of p-values with multi-modal samples

I'm working with data that is multi-modal, I need to be able to check if the individual samples are statistically distinct or not, so I'm running KS-test against pairs of samples. But I've noticed ...

### Is the multimodal as in multimodal machine learning the same as that as in multimodal distribution?

The multimodal distribution is a distribution with multiple modes as shown below. It reminds me of the multimodal machine learning where multimodal implies multiple types of information, just like ...

### Significance of modes in a distribution

I have several datasets with angular measurements, i.e. circular values from 0 to $2\pi$. These datasets tend to have peaks at 0 and/or $\pi$, and I need to tell if the peaks are detected/significant. ...
